Contributions to this fund will support local nonprofits who provide suicide prevention and training programs.
Turning a personal tragedy into a way to help others, Aaron Davis Broadaway’s grandparents created this fund to raise awareness for the alarming number of suicides that occur each year. They want to educate people to pay attention to this critical mental health issue, and they want to provide support to local nonprofits to help those in need to prevent this tragedy from happening to other families.
During his life, Aaron often spent time in the Keys visiting his grandparents and volunteering with his grandfather, Billy Davis, to help several local nonprofits and serve others.
“Many people knew Aaron and he was part of the fabric of this community,” says Billy. Setting up the fund was a way to make a difference.
Others who have gone through this experience may be able to help so that the fund can provide support to local nonprofits for suicide prevention programs and training and aid those at risk. Creating a fund to benefit others is a way to make Aaron’s memory live on and assist those in need here in Monroe County. “Helping others is the best way to honor him,” says Billy.
